Louisiana State University AgCenter researchers are working to develop biological controls for aflatoxin-producing fungi.
This week the University of Wisconsin Plant Disease Diagnostic Clinic confirmed Goss’s wilt in dent corn from Grant County in Wisconsin.
Fall armyworms and corn borers have long been a concern for Louisiana corn growers. While farmers in the U.S. have planted transgenic Bt corn varieties since the 1990s to biologically control pests, staying ahead of their ability to develop resistance is a constant battle.

The corn market rose in concert with nearby beans and wheat Thursday. The weekly USDA Export Sales report provided no surprises for corn traders, which seemingly left them open to following the bean and wheat markets higher. Ultimately, talk of strong demand seems to be supporting the crop markets at this juncture. September corn closed up 2.75 cents to $3.6225/bushel Thursday, while December added 1.5 to $3.69.
